Quigley looking to kick on after bagging his first goal back in the Football League

Shropshire’s Scott Quigley is aiming to kick on and climb up the goal scoring charts after notching up his first goal since returning to the Football League this week.

After a stop start season due to a suspension and injuries the former TNS striker has started the last two games for League Two new boys Barrow.

And he scored his first goal back in the league on Tuesday, but the Bluebirds fell to a 4-3 victory at home to Oldham Athletic.

It was their first home defeat of the campaign but last season’s National League top scorer and player of the year is hoping he can kick on now and help the Holker Street side climb the table.

He said: “Hopefully I can move on now. It is a bit of a monkey off my back really.

“It has been a strange season with a suspension carrying over from last season and then injuries haven’t been great.

“I picked up an injury on a 4G pitch and so did another striker which hasn’t been ideal for the gaffer.

“That’s been our season with injuries and trying to get everyone back fit.

“But that was only our first home loss of the season so we’ve done well and I just want to kick on now.”

Under the guidance of new manager David Dunn the Bluebirds currently sit 19th in the League Two table.

But Quigley said that doesn’t tell the full story and other managers have been showering Barrow with praise for their brand of football.

He insists the praise is nice but it isn’t as good as points.

He added: “We’ve been playing well and other managers have said we have been one of the best footballing sides they’ve played.

“That’s nice but we want to turn those draws into wins and we have the squad for that.”
